The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association maintains the highest standards for abstract acceptance and program development. The goal is to bring a spectrum of the very best stroke science to ISC — from the most basic research to patient-based studies to large clinical trials. The science covers a vast array of topics in 21 categories, including emergency medicine, diagnosis, interventional treatments, nursing and rehabilitation.
High-scoring abstracts will be featured at a variety of prominent forums at ISC, including the plenary sessions, oral abstract sessions, and moderated poster sessions. Be sure to submit your abstract during the regular summer abstract submission period (May 23 - Aug 14.) The acceptance for late-breaking science (submitted in October) is quite low. Late-breaking science is only the exceptional work that could not be submitted at an earlier date, and it often relates to trials that only come to fruition at the late-breaking deadline. Do not wait until the late-breaking deadline but rather aim for the summer deadline. The vast majority of presentations that will be selected will be those submitted during the summer.

Abstract Submission Guidelines
Presenting your science at ISC offers you many benefits:
International Impact: Media coverage from around the world resulted in more than 1.9 billion media impressions for ISC 2012 - impressions from major media outlets included the Associated Press, Bloomberg News, Boston Globe, MSNBC, Huffington Post, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Today Show, LA Times, ABC News, AARP, UPI, Fox News, Yahoo Health, MSN.com, and many more. So your research could have global impact.
Virtual Reach: The ISC virtual reach through the AHA/ASA Web site, e-mails, YouTube and Twitter activity reached more than 60,000 people daily.
Network with International Leaders in the Stroke Field: Attend ISC and discuss your findings with stroke research and practice experts from around the globe. Almost 3,800 cerebrovascular experts from 50 countries attend the International Stroke Conference.
Published Abstracts: Accepted ISC and Nursing Symposium Abstracts will be published online in February 2013 on the AHA’s Stroke journal Web site.
Award Application: Student/Trainee and Early Career Authors - please be sure to submit your abstract for award consideration. New this year - ISC Travel Award Grants!
- Late-Breaking Science and Ongoing Clinical Trials abstracts will not be published. They will be available online on the International Stroke Conference Web site on February 7, 2013 and will be included in the International Stroke Conference’s Abstracts on CD-ROM.
In order to encourage a broad range of science and speakers, international authors and junior authors are strongly encouraged to submit abstracts for presentation.
